7 Days To Die .44 Magnum


The .44 Magnum is a powerful short to medium range weapon. It uses .44 Magnum bullets and has a capacity of 6 cartridges. This Handgun is quite durable and will need fixing after about 583 shots. 

It reloads automatically if you have the right ammunition or you can do it manually by pressing R. This weapon is found all over the 7 Days To Die world. You can most commonly find it at one of the 7 days to die shotgun messiah factory or simply craft it if you have all the required items.

Combat Using Magnum

This is a powerful weapon to have especially in close combat. Just one shot to the head can bring down even the tough zombies. Of course, the common weaker zombies will die if you shoot them anywhere in close quarters. However, there are drawbacks to using the Magnum.

For one, it is loud and has a noise range of 60 metres. This will attract more zombies. For another, the reload is pretty slow. Add all of this to the small magazine capacity and it can become a pretty tough situation if you have to handle multiple zombies. The ammunition for this powerful handgun is also costly and not easily available and you’ll probably need to craft it using a workbench.
